More and more clients want their projects to be properly analyzed, regarding the risks associated to them. In this module, you will learn all aspects of a schedule risk analysis, with practical examples and cases, using Primavera Risk Analysis (PRA). In addition to importing and checking a schedule, you add uncertainties and risks to the planning. You learn how to interpret the outcomes of the risk analysis and to present them in a correct way and to communicate them to a project team by, among other things, using distribution graphs and tornado graphs and scatter plots. Some other topics are the calculation of buffers, scenario analyzes and weather calendars. This module fits in closely with the PPI (Project Planning Infrastructure) method of Rijkswaterstaat.

This module is part of the specialization Risk of the Project Controls Programme.
